I wanted to leave something nice behind, though, so that even if I go on a holiday, my blog wouldn’t have to. Just so you know, I am a major sucker for Instagram. I mostly follow travel-themed accounts, brilliant tattoo artists and fashion (plus all of my friends, because I am just sweet enough to like your goddamn Happy Meal pictures. JK, I love you all), which means my feed is overwhelmed with inspiration that makes me want to throw all my money on everything but the things I actually need. (To be honest, toothpaste is overrated anyway.) I want y’all to feel the same way. So here’s a delightful filler post containing a couple of pictures from my favourite Instagram accounts. If you don’t follow them yet, you probably should.
This couple posts inspiring photos from their travels, so their feed is full of colourful shots of endless roads and landscapes. I absolutely love them.
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js Alli and Bobby are not exactly newlyweds anymore but they haven’t stopped travelling yet. This gorgeous couple shows the luxury side of travel that I and most other backpackers can only dream sweet dreams of. Sigh.
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js This part-time doctor lives in Scotland with her husband and fills her feed with ridiculously brilliant pictures of their hikes around the world (although a big part of them come from Scotland).
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js A Polish-Australian couple (why do I follow this many couples?) that, well, travels the world. Their pictures make me want to punch them for giving me such a serious case of itchy feet. Oh, and they have a blog, too.
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js This woman seems to be on the move all the time. She posts pictures of national parks in the USA so her feed is strongly outdoorsy. I adore it.
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js I like this account particularly because he takes a lot of portraits of local people. Of course the shots of landscapes are stunning as well.
//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js A girl living in Brussels that mostly shoots monuments, houses and European cities. Definitely check her out if you’re planning a city holiday!
